The final event of the CUIDAR Cultures of Disaster Resilience Among Children and Young People project will take place in Lisbon on the 22nd and 23rd of May 2018.

This event will show the project’s main findings to an international audience of decision-makers, practitioners, and researchers.  Participants will experience and discuss the main outcome from the project – a child-centred disaster management framework for Europe, which will help those working in the field engage with young people in emergency planning and disaster risk reduction. Children and young people who participated in CUIDAR’s activities will be actively engaged during the event.

Keynote speaker: Professor Lori Peek, Director Natural Hazards Center, University of Colorado-Boulder, USA and author with Alice Fothergill of Children of Katrina.


Attendance to the conference is free of charge but participants must register here.
